HENRYETTA - For the second-straight year, the Henryetta Golden Knights have started a varsity football season with four-consecutive losses.

The Knights had their Homecoming celebration spoiled last Friday night with a 37-16 loss to the visiting Commerce Tigers at historic Cameron Field.

The 21-point setback puts the Henryetta squad at 0-4 in 2017. The Knights began last season with five-straight losses before winning three in a row in district action that saw the Henryetta squad make their second-straight postseason appearance.

While the 4-game losing streak to begin 2017 is disappointing for head coach Darin Johnson and his Henryetta players, it does not diminish the plans for a third-consecutive trip to the playoffs.

BEGGS - The Henryetta Golden Knights remain winless in 2017 following a 40-16 loss to the Beggs Golden Demons this past Friday night at Golden Demon Stadium.

The Knights' search for their first win of the season will continue this Friday when the Commerce Tigers come to town for a Week 3 non-district battle.

The Henryetta offense was held to 172 yards of total offense and turned the ball over twice in the county showdown with the Demons, who now have won the last five meetings. The last Henryetta win against Beggs came in Week 9 of the 2009 season when the Knights scored a thrilling 29-23, overtime, win over the Demons in Henryetta.

In last Friday's showdown, the host Beggs squad got the scoring started at the 10:23 mark of the opening quarter when Shaidan Jordan hauled in a 35-yard pass from Dax McElroy. The PAT kick  was no good, giving the Demons the early 6-0 advantage.

The night, however, belonged to Brown, who found the end zone once in each of the first three quarters.
